Tip-toe up the water way on smooth stepping stones, under an archway of dense ferns and towering Yellowwood trees until…
You get to a bird shaped pool filling constantly with spring water, Colonel Bird’s bath, a green oasis which looked so inviting on a steaming summer’s day.
Meet ‘Rambo’ the angry head-butting 20cm long tortoise, with a long neck and attitude.
Clamber into the enveloping branches of a 350 year old wild almond tree or
find the palm tree with one of the longest leaves in the world.
Take a winding walk along the ‘smelly’ path, and find the lemon scented pelargonium.
Watch the lazy Acraea butterfly, it’s body toxic to birds so it flirts with life.
Wink at a spotted eagle owl juvenile chilling in a paper bark thorn tree, or play hide and seek with it’s parents.
Paddle in the water ways with tadpoles or splash in ground level fountains.
Why not give your child, grandchild or even your inner child a present to remember?
Or better still a year long membership if it is right on your doorstep!
